PRIME Minister David Cameron has promised to crackdown on cyberbullies.

In a heartfelt letter to Gabbi Dix, mum of tragic Brixham 14-year old Izzy who died after enduring a campaign of bullying online, he says in his own handwriting: "We will do everything we can to put pressure on those that own, run and exhibit on these sites."

Mr Cameron, who lost his child Ivan in 2009, hopes that Gabbi will be able to see past the pain.

He said: "I know there will come a day when you will be able to see past the pain to remember the happy times that you shared together and the great joy that Isobella brought to those who knew her."

He said that Michael Gove has written separately on the action the Government has taken on 'tackling the utterly unacceptable and cowardly bullying that has occurred via social media websites as well as in schools."

He reassures her of his own personal commitment to ensure website owners take more responsibility.

He said: "Bullies often mistakenly believe that they are beyond the reach of the law because the abuse that they commit occurs online.

"I am very clear that this is not the case."

The letter has been posted on twitter by the Izzy Dix Memorial Group.
